Weenie Paul Ryan now wants to use his position on Fox’s board to ‘do something’ about Trump
According to a new report in Vanity Fair, former House Speaker Paul Ryan thinks his new job as a board member of Fox Corporation will finally allow him to “do something” about President Donald Trump.
Paul Ryan is the guy who had the opportunity while Republicans had a complete majority in Washington to seal the border and get any number of things done – but what did he do? Nothing but obstruct.
Now, Ryan wants to help remove Trump? He is not only a RINO, but a feckless weenie who has no business on any board. “Paul is embarrassed about Trump, and now he has the power to do something about it,” a Fox executive told Vanity Fair.
Ryan, who joined the Fox Corporation board in March, is now said to be one of the most important voices pushing Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch to transition Fox News and pivot away from Trump.
Ryan has been openly critical of Trump ever since leaving Congress. In several on-the-record interviews for the Politico correspondent Tim Alberta’s book, “American Carnage,” Ryan didn’t mince words about Trump.
“I told myself I gotta have a relationship with this guy to help him get his mind right,” Ryan told Alberta. “Because, I’m telling you, he didn’t know anything about government … I wanted to scold him all the time.”
In one instance recounted in the book, Trump was displeased that a 2018 spending package didn’t include funding for his desired border wall. He signed it only on the condition that Ryan allow him some time to generate suspense for the bill on Twitter.
Ryan said: “We helped him make much better decisions, which were contrary to kind of what his knee-jerk reaction was. Now I think he’s making some of these knee-jerk reactions.”
On Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the House would be launching a formal impeachment inquiry over an explosive whistleblower complaint from the intelligence community that accused Trump of pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate one of Trump’s political rivals, former Vice President Joe Biden, and his son Hunter Biden. The now-declassified complaint was made public Thursday.
